is it will increase -- by not raising the debt ceiling, you should be able to raise taxes on the wealthy, making $200,000 a year or more. host: ok. anthony in greensboro, north carolina, independent. caller: good morning. i have done quite a bit of research on the debt. what i don't hear from anybody, whether from the politicians or people asking questions, is the fact that the united states over the last 10 or 15 years has overwhelmingly started bases all over the world. over 1200 bases. and i cannot get a direct answer to actually how many. each would bring in the amount of money well over $1 trillion in just the maintenance. along with that, on the far side, after deep search, i discovered that the united states in the last eight years, since 1998, i believe, through nasa, they have come to believe in some kind of solar scenario along with an economic scenario and have been spending a lot of money in creating bases or underground cities in preparation, which is understandable, as any other nation, including japan and china have been doing themselves. host: next we will hear from a democratic calle
and said it much better than i will, in fact, maybe if you had it on tape, we'd show it. but tax policy and trade policy. obviously, as the recession hits the world, why, trade policy gets more difficult. and we have troubles getting products into two of our most fast-growing markets, in argentina and brazil, which we could use some government help on keeping those markets open. and, of course, the big one is tax policy. we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. so that mark barker who is now the ceo of the company and for a young whippersnapper of 55, he's doing a great job, but that he sits every year when he sets the budget, and he has to decide where the last dollar of investment goes. and where it generates the last dollar of profit. so he could get a dollar of profit in the united states for which 60 cents goes out to the shareholder, to the ultimate shareholder. or he can get another dollar, he can get that dollar profit in timbuktu of which 75 cents comes to the average shareholder. so any global company can maneuver around it, procter & gamble does that, i'm sure, be
their fair share of taxes, but-- watching the drama with our economy in the middle and debating because the policy, is that your money don't miss cavuto tonight at 8. >> at 8:30 eastern time, a lot of numbers from the government. and mostly they do not affect the market and that's the case in point today. the consumer price index, no change in the month of december. over the past year, the consumer price index has gone up 1.7%, you can safely say no real inflation measured by the government at the consumer level. no impact on the market either. all right, the trading has started and the dow industrials% the opening trend is mixed. you can't say there's an opening trend one way or the other, but bear in mind the dow is at 13,500. that's a pretty high level. that will be 700 points away from the all-time high for the dow. first off though, let's check boeing. a the lot of you probably own the stock, maybe in a mutual fund, so, nicole, with all the problems for the dreamliner overnight, where-- look at that. >> look at that, it's down dramatically, almost 4 1/2%, now you're talking about
's unacceptable for some republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on wealthiest americans. >> sean: gun at the head of the american people and republicans hostage takers and mr. president, comments like that are responsible for the gridlock in washington and whether or not mr. president, you like to believe it, you're to blame. and with us, stuart varney and co-host of "the five", dana perino, it never stops. >> at least he's consistent? good point. >> there are -- when there's a saying, you know, don't believe your own hype. i also think that in some ways presidents should not read their own press. there are always going be to be critics and i remember george w. bush did not spend a lot of times reading the nasty things that people said about him. he would say, look, this is where i think we need to go, this is a policy and help me get there. and he would try to bring in people from the other side to get that done. that wasn't always possible and people didn't always agree with him, but that was a bert approach and got more d

thing to vote against it when you're squandering a bill clinton surplus on tax cuts for those who don't need tax cuts pre-2008. it is another thing when you're trying to climb out of a recession. >> that's exactly right. there is a lot of misunderstanding about the debt ceiling. most americans think the debt ceiling is congress giving itself permission to spend more money. when they understand it is about do we default on our bills they say what? you're not going to pay your bills? that's what the debt ceiling is about. one of the things i advocated was the restoration of the gephardt rule that said when congress voted for a budget, let's say it voted for the iraq war that cost a trillion dollars, then at the moment that they voted for that program the debt ceiling would be adjusted up or down to reflect the budget they just voted for. that's what most americans would do. so this debt ceiling is all about hypocrisy. it is all about pretending that we have an option about paying our bills. by the way, a lot of the bills we have to pay are things i was adamantly opposed to. i didn't wan
and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 t
country and does washington have enough? how much more must they take from the hard-working americans, tax paying americans who are trying to put their life together every day. i and my colleagues who spoke earlier today believe that washington has enough. we don't need to give her more. mr. speaker, i yield back the balance of my time. thank you. the chair: under the speaker's announced policy of january 3, 2013, the gentleman from california, mr. garamendi, is recognized for 60 minutes as the designee of the minority leader. mr. garamendi: i thank you, mr. speaker. it's good -- it is very, very good that the new 113th congress acted today to reach out in sympathy, compassion and with real support to the people who were so severely impacted by superstorm sandy. one of our colleagues just a moment ago spoke about this nation being at a crossroads, and indeed, we crossed paths many, many times and there are many different crossroads. the people of pennsylvania, new jersey, new york, connecticut and other parts of this great nation here on the east coast, came to a crossroads. that crossroad
and the issues we deal with in the coast and trying to tie that to the tax base and relate that both from a local regional perspective but also a national perspective. when you look at it, 30% of this nation's g.d.p. comes from the gulf coast. you look at the population increase we've had. since 1970, there has been 109% increase in the gulf coast region. the people are there, the vulnerabilities are there but also it is significant to what it provides to the nation. from the states perspective and also from the gulf we recognize that healthy ecosystems also can mean healthy economies. from louisiana, what we have taken -- what we believe is a very good first effort the addressing the vulnerabilities that exist in reducing that risk is with the state's matter of fact plan which is a long- term plan to reduce the economic significance and reduce the risk across the coast. we believe we can achieve protection for all coastal communities. it is that resource that is important. the states provide and the gulf provides to the nation, it if it is going to be afforded through the nation. we believe with
. these three states -- new york, new jersey, and connecticut, threes three states pay almost 16% of the taxes collected in the united states of america. three states, 16% of the taxes. you ask the question, who suffered because of superstorm sandy? certainly our neighbors in new york and new jersey and connecticut suffered the most, but all americans will suffer if this economic engine is not rebuilt. the three states that pay nearly 16% of the taxes need this reconstruction, and so does the united states of america. all members, republican and democrat, should vote yes in favor of this legislation. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from oklahoma is recognized. mr. cole: i reserve the balance of my time, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: i'm pleased to yield a minute and a half to the gentleman from new york, mr. bishop. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york is recognized for 1 1/2 minutes. mr. bishop: i thank my friend, representative slaughter for yielding ti

represents the values and priorities of the public and the decisions being made about what to spend and tax and someone, they are very difficult and contentious decisions that take time to address. >> , those issues, of course, are not the specific purview and why don't we shift gears and talk more explicitly about some of the things that the fed is doing and things that the fed might do. perhaps a way to introduce that is to say that that is in keeping interest rates close to zero, since it has dug pretty deep into an unconventional policy. asset purchases are meant to help in the short term. can you explain that? >> well, monetary policy involved the overnight interest rate up and down and hoping that the rest of the interest rates would move in sympathy. then we get a situation in 2008 where we had dropped the short-term rate down about as far as it could go come almost entirely to zero. so the question is what work did the fed do. there are many people a decade ago event a lot of articles about how the fed would be out of ammunition if they got down to zero. a lot of work by academics a

state, 16% of the taxes. you ask the question: who suffered because of super storm sandy? certainly, our neighbors in new york and new jersey and connecticut suffered the most. but all americans will suffer if this economic engine is not rebuilt. >> reporter: a number of lawmakers have made the point, it is all about the northeast. but tomorrow, it could be a quake in california. it could be tornados in the midwest or a hurricane in florida. so they're suggesting you may want to be careful taking a hard line on disaster relief money, shep. >> shepard: mike emanuel, thank you. veterans are having a hard time getting jobs in many cases. now, a job for every veteran returning who wants one. that, from wal-mart. its u.s. president says they plan to hire more than 100,000 veterans over five years. the program starts on memorial day. he says all vets without a dishonorable disharj are eligible. first lady michelle obama called the decision historic and says she will urge other companies to do the same thing. critics say wal-mart officials are trying to repair the company's image, after di

and the phones and gets his way on that and gets his way on the tax bill that kennedy couldn't get through. my question is when you look at the great skills and the talents that lbj had dealing with the senate and congress, do they really apply in the era of hyper polarization that we live in? the republican leader. does mitch mcconnell respond with the same? >> i think you have to remember that there was terrific polarization in the 1960s. the democratic party was in control of tourn democrats who were against the kifl rights bills and controlled the mitties. the house were mostly in control of people against the bills. they were also against most of the great society programs. he had to find republicans that would support him. what the hell is say presidency for is a quote of johnson when early 64 before his first state of the union after kennedy died, his entire staff said don't go for the civil rights bill. it's a presidential election year and hang on to the presidency and we will do it after that. he said what the hell is say presidency for? we are going for it. he went for it and got it

beast. let's start with the campaign push for this because we did see it work to help raise taxes on the rich. what does the president need to do this time around, do you think, patricia? >> i think he really needs to change the dynamic of what senators and congressmen are hearing from their constituents, and we see him doing that. the president knows when we look at national polls, the majority of americans are in favor of stricter gun control, but in states that are dedicated to keeping their majority, colorado, it can really the democrats can really unwilling to tackle this issue. >> let me play a little bit of the president's pitch from yesterday. >> ask them what's more important. doing whatever it takes to get a a grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaignings? or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> we're asking congress for a -- universal background checks. what are the chances he gets any or all of those? >> i think it's important to take a look at what's important this time around compared to the last time around th
hands? >> tucker: campaign team got president obama elected twice being organized into tax exempt political group. >> the team organizing for action familiar faces robert gibbs, campaign manager. messina. david axelrod and stefanie cutter. >> we heard from gibbs this week on this particular issue if the nra wants to put forward their list we have got our own list. if they want to fight us on this, bring it on because we have got our own list. they are mobilizing because they think they have the people and numbers hind them to do it? >> fine. this is america. people have the right to organize. they have the right to express themselves but i do find one point of this very very amazingly ironic. he they are tax exempt. i thought we were all supposed to be patriotic and pay our fair share. why would the president set up an organization that specifically uses that loophole in the law that allows them to be tax exempt when they could be paying their fair share because this is a multi-million-dollar operation, right? so that puts them in the 1% of organizations across america. i say, mr.
because they were afraid of higher tax rates in 2013. but for the first three months of 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking fiscal 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking deficit. so we are in a way chasing a vanishing problem. >> which is interesting, and that would allow for some things that are dirty and things that are not so dirty, would completely perhaps get rid of this problem after a while. do you think we're headed for a full stalemate? >> it's such a shame. i think david is right because we have low debt service right now. we're paying less interest on our debt than we had in the reagan and bush administrations before because interest rates are so low. >> but they're going to go up one day. >> but not for several years. i'll say it, we should be borrowing more at 30-year, 3% terms, so we can invest in the long-term growth of this economy. this is not the time for further austerity and cuts. if we were even to consider that right now, it would be a disaster. and what we're doing right now as the president correctly said today, is actually making our economy seem more risky and hurti
, to balance any tax revenues? >> well, i think we need to look at long-term and that's where the house has passed the budget. we're still waiting on the senate to pass the budget after 1,350 days. you need to have that on the table from the senate side. you obviously need to have that from the president who has not told us when he is going to send his budget over. is he going to miss those dead looirchz. we have a lot of work to do, but it deals with spending. that's the problem. i want to avoid a downgrade, and i do agree with the vice president of the united states that says we're not going to default on our debt. that's clear. we have enough payments coming in to the treasury to pay our interest on the debt, and that's how we avoid the default, but we've got to focus on the spending problem, and that's what most of my constituents are talking about. >> i want to ask you about the gun control debate because the president is going to be rolling out a new proposal tomorrow, and he is prepared to use executive action in some ways if congress won't act. harry reid has said that until the hou
